Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais
Working with Partners In Health and staff at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais, Global Healing has helped open the blood bank and transfusion service at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais. The hospital is technologically advanced and will provide medical care to the local community of Mirebalais and referral patients from across Haiti. Given the scope and sophistication of the services to be offered at the hospital, there will be a strong demand for blood products.
Global Healing has already seen early support from Helmer Scientific, Immucor, and other corporate companies to establish the blood bank. Volunteer blood banking specialists from Blood Centers of the Pacific and Héma-Québec have began working with local staff on component production, compatibility testing, quality management, and transfusion education. In the next three years, Global Healing will continue working with local medical staff and stakeholders to ensure that 100% of blood needs are met at Hôpital Universitaire de Mirebalais and that blood products are safely transfused.
